Tristan Thompson (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Friday’s game.
Thompson has sat out nine straight games but was upgraded to questionable on Wednesday, so a return could be coming very soon. He’s no lock to return as the starter, however, in what’s a suddenly-muddled frontcourt in Cleveland. If he does start, Kevin Love will kick over to power forward and Jeff Green will move to the bench. The Cavs could opt for a more athletic tandem of Larry Nance Jr. and Love up front, as well. TT is just a rebounding specialist and won’t be worth your time outside of 16-team formats but his presence will cap Nance and Green considerably. Green is shaping up as a drop in most leagues while Ante Zizic could fall out of the rotation entirely.
